Intel Active Management Technology (Intel AMT) provides a fixed set of out-of-band manageability features that work independently of the operating system (OS) and work even when the computer is sleeping. In this article, we take a look at how to make use of Intel AMT well beyond its intended design, and we examine how these new usages increase the value of deploying and activating Intel vPro technology. This paper discuss uses of four AMT functions: Serial-over-LAN, IDE Redirection, Agent Presence, and Third-Party Data Storage.
